This is me now June 2013
Summer June 2013
This is where I have come from! Back in 2007 this the "FLUFFY" version of me
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I am human and I backslid* I am ready to get back in the game and reclaim the success I had, but lost.
I am 29yrs old and I gained 30lbs back of what I had lost successfully. I can blame it on life events, problems that happened, and pain I endured, but bottom line I forgot I was “EATING TO LIVE, NOT LIVING TO EAT”! I feel I have to reteach myself the correct eating habits again. I am not sure why this time it is so hard for me. I am not sure if it’s because I am embarrassed that I have to re-loose weight I already lost or if it’s because I feel I relapsed. I never looked at food as being an addiction, but I am now. The convenience in fast food that’s high in grease and calories is mind boggling, Where’s convenience in healthy food. I can tell you where in the fresh produce isle at your local super market. We are told to “EAT CLEAN”, it seems simple but it is so easy to stray.
I am however going to find my success again. I am not putting emphasis on a magic pill, or being thin but on being healthy. My kids are very impressionable (10 & 8) and I hate them seeing me taking steps back instead of forward. I am going to make an example out of myself for them, so they can see you are able to regain control after you feel you have lost it. I am going to show my daughter that you can and will love yourself by taking the necessary actions of becoming healthy and not to live by what society says is beautiful! I just forgot that for a while, I forgot who I have looking up to me, I forgot my own self-worth, I forgot I am beautiful, I forgot that eating better and staying active is worth the time. I just had to remind myself that sweat and sore muscles are not an inconvenience but an honor!
Goal 1: Do 90 min. of cardio weekly
Goal 2: Track and record calories eaten daily stay with in range and consume twice as much protein to carbs
Goal 3: Make sure to consume 3-4 liters of water daily
Goal 4: Lose between 2-3 lbs weekly
Goal 5: Reward myself for every 5 lbs lost
As of 2-21 I will be going to Cardio Kickboxing every monday then Zumba on every Tuesday and Thursday. The other days I will be doing strength resting Saturday and Sunday! I'm so excited!!
I'm from Ohio and I now 26yrs old. I have been on this journey for about 2yrs now but not always active. I'm getting my priorities in order and "I'm so Done"

Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL
This is the best time of the year for you to begin anew as your Sun sign gives you strength to make a fresh start. Cancer is a wonderful sign for a woman to be as it is the sign of the mother, who is in control of her family. You have tenacity to stay with and finish any task you start. You can be a nag and you want everything don't yesterday and done your way. Often you are the "Little Red Hen" who ends up doing it all. Learn to direct others so they take part in the work. Cancer can certainly have a weight problem as she loves to cook and to eat. But, she also has tenacity and can exercise and keep herself fit if she wants as this is her way to setting an example to those around her. She gets along with Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus, Pisces and Scorpio. She is a saver and most often has her secret cash account.
She can have health issues with her breasts.
In Cancer the Sun is receptive and moody. You are a very sensitive person who is easily influenced by your environment. You are likely to be exceedingly protective of your feelings, as well as the feelings of those to whom you are close. Emotions are strong in your nature. You approach life with many feelings and a strong nurturing tendency. Your moods are varied and changeable. They are synchronized to the Moon, flowing in and out like the tide. You are acutely aware of the atmosphere of feelings surrounding you. You're skeptical and distrustful of people. It's not what they say, but simply the way they say it and the way you interpret their meaning.
You need to tell your deepest thoughts. When those around you are not receptive, you can become quite difficult to reach. The "crabby" part of Cancer shows up once in awhile, as well. When these moods are in control of your behavior, you can snap someone's head off for no reason at all. People you live around have to learn that you are not really angry with them. This is just the way Moon children are sometimes. By nature you are quiet and somewhat reserved, frequently retreating or putting up a protective barrier when you feel in any way threatened.
You are attuned to the past. You tend to cling to reminders and memorabilia of your family and of earlier times. Many Cancers are attracted to collecting antiques. You may be one of those people who collects just about everything. It's hard for you to part with something when there may be a chance need some rainy day, no matter how remote that chance may be. Cancers are the original "pack-rats."
You place much importance on the home and family. Your family or your "family of friends" is the center of your life. They provide you your sense of security and belonging. Your role in this environment is the source of your self-esteem and often overshadow your sense of individuality. It's hard to break away from your early upbringing and depart from the family traditions you have experienced. Cancer is the sign of motherhood. In both sexes, it produces a parenting instinct that is caring, protective, and indulging. Even unmarried Cancers adopt friends, co-workers, and neighbors in an extended family situation.
Hardworking and dedicated, you make an excellent employee. You are loyal and respect authority. This makes you supportive and protective of the boss and rarely questioning company policy. You do find it very difficult to handle change and disruption. If you are the boss, you like your employees to be dedicated as you are. Unfortunately, sometimes you may surround yourself with "yes men" who simply reinforce your decisions. You don't take chances or risk sweeping change.
Money is very important to you. Not for what it will buy or for the freedom it provides, but for the sense of security it provides. No matter what else is to be said of Cancer, security and having the protective shell in place, is overriding. -
